Mombaruzzo, town that faces beautiful Monferrato’s hills, often “marries” young foreign lovers. In fact La Villa Hotel, managed by an english couple, is a very requested location for marriages, in the whole Europe. Roxana and Benny are Swiss and they decided to come here to celebrate their wedding, just as Valerie and Matthias one year ago (check here for photos).
They got married in the Santa Maria Maddalena church. Roxana, that prepared with her mother and her bridesmaid’s help (her sister and a childhood friend), arrived in an elegant white vintage Fiat 500. Waiting for her, there was Benny, dressed in blue, the colour the sky didn’t wear… also the weather was very “swiss”!
Ceremony didn’t last long, because words were reserved for the party: during the dinner many friends and relatives presented their emotional speech, dedicated to newlyweds.
The dinner went by with games and toasts, in open air, under tarpaulins that made guests forget of rain worries. The sun peeped out only tu offer us a wonderful sunset over Monferrato’s vineyards.
Benny, who is a dj and usually frequents clubs in Zurich, selected two djs and a vocalist (coming from TV talent-shows) to make people dance and have fun. And the midnight was “ora loca”, as they called it: friends and newlyweds took costumes, balloons and all sort of accessories for a funny photo-set.
Roxana and Benny, it was a pleasure to photograph you and celebrate together. We wish you all the best, and we hope you’ll come soon in Italy!
